Who we are
When you move into your new home there are so many things to think about and buy. The families you support are about to move into a new home and need your help to furnish and equip it to be a bright, modern, comfortable safe space, because environment matters when you need to heal and find your strengths.
To give you some idea of the funding needed please find below examples of the rooms and items identified as required to make the new refuge a warm and safe place for survivors to begin their journey toward recovery. You can use the suggestions to guide your donation or choose to gift a different amount – every penny will make a difference.
(In the unlikely event that funds raised exceed the amount required to furnish and equip the new refuge, excess funds will be used to deliver services to survivors).
Whether a single or regular gift we will use your donation wisely.
Some examples of the costs of supporting families:
£10.00 - Could provide a new bundle of towels for a family moving into refuge.
£20.00 - could buy a kettle for that much needed cup of tea.
£50.00 – could wrap a survivor in crisp, comfy bed linen.
£100.00 – could purchase a lovely cot for the many babies who stay with us.
£250.00 - could give a child good dreams in their own bed.
£550.00 - could give the children in refuge a fun place to explore, play and just be children.
A recurring monthly gift of:
£100 means a traumatised child learns that the abuse was not their fault.
£20 from 250 supporters provides Helpline support for a full year.
£10 from 1000 supporters provides Children's Outreach support for a full year.
£5 from 65 supporters provides one 12 week Recovery Programme.
